Sweet Potato Toast has become my latest obsession. Unless you’ve been living in a bubble (which let’s face it, with the way 2020 is going don’t we all wish for the bubble?), you must have heard about the trend that is sweet potato toast. A long lost friend in Canada introduced me to sweet potatoes at Christmas (mashed with crunchy bacon, caramelized onions, and maple syrup) years and years ago. Ever since, they’ve been one of my favourite edibles.
However, I was late catching on the sweet potato toast train. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t compare nor substitute actual toast whatsoever. But, it’s delicious and to be honest, the most fun comes in coming up with different flavour combinations. I always get creative when making them, and forget what half the toppings are. So it ends up being a tasting!
It’s straight forward to do, they can be savoury or sweet, the potatoes can be prepped in advance, and the potato slice is only around 25 Kcal each. Go wild!
So, give it a go, and don’t forget to tag your crazy creations for us to see! (@pinkpeppercorncyprus for Instagram and @pinkcateringcyprus for Facebook)
Whatever you have in your fridge to use up works great. Eaten as a warm breakfast is perfect. Otherwise, a snack during the day, or even as a very light dinner.
Here, I used a range of different spreads and toppings, including:
- Avocado Mash – mash avocado, add finely chopped red onion and tomato, add lemon juice and salt & pepper
- Peanut Butter
- Olive Tapenade
- Homemade Hummus
- Cottage Cheese
- Egg Salad – boiled eggs chopped with finely chopped spring onions, yoghurt (instead of mayo), paprika, salt & pepper
- baby tomatoes, red onion, and fresh basil leaves
- thinly sliced cucumber with beetroot and oregano
- smoked turkey and pickles
- goats’ cheese and basil
- feta cheese and baby tomatoes
- fried or scrambled eggs
- banana and chia seeds
My list could keep going! Experiment and have fun with it!
